Its a Cowgirl's Life

A Horse & Lifestyle Site


Hey y’all,

I’m Kelly!


Hey Y’all! My name is Kelly O’Connor. I grew up in the great sunny state of Florida, but now live in a small town in Illinois. I am a Barrel Racer, blogger, and Youtuber.

I have been riding horses for about 13 years, and I have been barrel racing for about 3 years. I started this blog in January of 2017, and I started it to help the people, There were certain things I wish I could research online whether it be horse related or just life and I decided start the blog to give something I didn’t have and now it’s turned into something bigger than that. I started a YouTube channel in March of 2017, this YouTube channel goes along with my blog. My YouTube channel is also to help people but I also do posts that are for fun, you’ll find barn vlog’s, vacation videos, and I will be documenting Las Vegas in December when we go watch the National Finals Rodeo.

While my passion is in horses, I also love helping people, I enjoy doing makeup, and I love fashion, too. I plan on starting my own business in the very near future. I want to be able to work for myself, and I want to be able to travel and chase my dreams to become a professional barrel racer. Thanks for dropping by my website. Take a look around, check out my blog, and follow me on social media, too!


Much love,



No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.
